New £210,000 road safety improvements on A9 approach to Keir Roundabout underway

 

·         Works will improve motorist awareness of the approaching roundabout and enhance safety

 

A new £210,000 road safety project is underway on the A9 around Keir Roundabout to help improve road user safety.

The project will involve installing four new dynamic vehicle activated signs on the A9 southbound approach to the roundabout.  New road markings will also be introduced on the roundabout itself as well as new signs on the local roads, the B8033 Stirling Road, B824 and the A9 towards Bridge of Allan. This will improve the safety of vehicles which travel the route by alerting drivers of the oncoming queues and help guide drivers around the circulatory carriageway of the roundabout itself.

The improvements started this week and will take place in various stages throughout the next two months during overnight hours to minimise any impact to road users.

Commenting on the project, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative said: “Safety is a top priority for both BEAR Scotland and Transport Scotland and this scheme is part of our commitment to improving road safety on this section of the A9 and the busy Keir Roundabout. 

The project is being carried out overnight to minimise the impact to motorists, however, we encourage road users to plan their journey in advance and allow some extra journey time.”

The works will be carried out by BEAR Scotland, Lochwynd and Clearview and have been planned in consultation with Police Scotland, Stirling Council and Transport Scotland.

Real time traffic information is available from Traffic Scotland on www.trafficscotland.org, twitter @trafficscotland or the new mobile website, my.trafficscotland.org.
